IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
Habits change your life, but they don't guarantee success.
Waking up early, working hard, and taking cold showers do not cause success. They contribute to it, but they may be insufficient.
It's up to you to define what a good habit is. This critical to forming new habits.
To find your why, your reason to change, just ask yourself this: “Will habit x improve the quality of my life?” Answer that. And then, adopt habits that bring you closer to the things you want in life.
We overestimate ourselves most of the time. And that's one of the reasons we try to do so many things at the same time, in a short period.
We can achieve a lot over a long period. So focus on one thing at a time. Stack one habit on top of the other, one by one.
Focus on small things. Build a strong foundation. Without it, we can never achieve anything meaningful:
When you want to do something, you start doing it and then you forget about it. We must use checklists to remind ourselves of what we’re trying to achieve.
Check off your habits daily. One day, you’ll be surprised by how much your life changed by such, seemingly, small habits.

You can do this either in the morning before you start your day or before you sleep at night. Read relevant books that will improve your knowledge or just read personal development books.
